Marcel Reich-Ranicki is a 2009 German TV movie directed by Dror Zahavi about the life of the literary critic Marcel Reich-Ranicki. Fall of 1938, a few months after graduating from high school, Marcel was deported to Warsaw and moved to the ghetto in 1940, where he also found the love of his life: The wedding day with Teophila (called "Tosia") coincided with the start of the eviction of the ghetto. Marcel's parents, his brother, and Tosia's mother are deported to the extermination camps. In February 1943 Marcel and his wife managed to escape from the ghetto to the Warsaw underground. In the 1950s, both decided to take an unusual step: they went back to the Federal Republic of Germany.
